CMM’s administrative assistant and membership specialist, Veronica Caminiti, is leaving the museum on August 7 for a full-time position at Rush University Medical Center.
Veronica joined the museum in 2016 when CMM first opened in the Bridgeport Art Center. She has been instrumental in the development of communications platforms including the museum’s Constant Contact e-mail system and Flipcause-designed website. Veronica has also helped develop streamlined systems for membership sign-up and renewal.
“We are happy for Veronica and her new job but sad that she is leaving,” says Jerry Thomas. “She’s been a tremendous asset for the museum and will be missed on the staff. As she transitions out of her staff role with the CMM, Veronica plans to volunteer on the Operations Committee and help out in any way she can. Her continued enthusiasm and support will be invaluable.”
In addition to her administrative roles, Veronica has been receiving visitors to the museum with her personal, warm welcome as the CMM receptionist.
“My experience at CMM this past five years has helped me become a better communicator and problem-solver,” says Veronica. “I’m grateful for the hands-on responsibilities I was given, which have taught me the value of persistence when facing challenging tasks.”
Veronica will take on the new role of full-time administrator at Rush Fetal & Neonatal Medical Center.
Best of luck to you Veronica!
